Rain Can’t Stop My Parade

I know most people hate rainy days and I do too. Waking up in the morning when it is raining makes it a lot harder to get motivated to dress up. But since I am not a sweatpants, t-shirt kinda girl, I went for another easy casual look. I threw on my favorite pair of Paige Jeans. The zippers add a great detail and give the  jeans a bit of a different and edgier look from your average pair. I threw on my cropped thermal shirt from free people because on days like this you want to be comfy, but not too hot. I also added my Hermes belt to pull together the outfit. Lastly I grabbed my Barbour rain coat as I was walking out the door. This jacket speaks for itself and really makes an outfit on its own. I wore my black rain boots with a hot pink monogram to add a little bit of color and fun. Hair is always difficult to maintain in bad weather, so I threw it up into a high pony tail. It takes a short amount of time and also looks great without putting in too much effort just to have it ruined later on! When you dress up it makes you feel better, so don’t let rainy days get you down! Try putting on a simple outfit, it will make all the difference!DSC_0594DSC_0597DSC_0588DSC_0589DSC_0610DSC_0583DSC_0613DSC_0606

It’s a Wrap!

I am finding myself to be a big fan of all pieces that wrap. The Wrap look is feminine, flirty and many times ends in a brilliant Bow at some point, as today’s fabulous top does!! The Wrap look can be found in everything from dresses to rompers to tops.  It is a very forgiving yet flattering look and can be dressed up or down, so versatile and fun.  Today’s outfit is very simple, yet is elegant enough for just about anywhere your day or evening plans take you.  I paired this chambray blue wrap top with summer white shorts.  I chose a textured, white short with a side zipper to give a more sophisticated look.  When paired with a nude wedge sandal, the outfit becomes dressy and perfect for numerous adventures.  The best part of the ensemble is the terrific bow detail in the back.  You look equally good coming and going!! This outfit takes little effort, which makes it an especially good one! If it’s a cool evening, a long sweater or even a jean jacket would be perfect! And, that’s a Wrap! 🙂 xo B
